SeaDream I called at the Port of Skagen with Danish and Norwegian guests

Denmark’s Port of Skagen hosted a total of 19 calls from SeaDream Yacht Club’s SeaDream I and SeaDream II this summer, becoming one of the first ports in the world to welcome cruise ships after the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the industry.

“We were very happy and grateful to be chosen as a port of call by one of the first cruise lines to resume cruising again,” said Anne Sofie Rønne Jensen, cruise manager at the port of Skagen. “The SeaDream ships have been carrying Norwegian and Danish guests and it has been a great pleasure to be able to welcome happy cruise guests again. A big thanks to Emilio Freeman from SeaDream Yacht Club and Hans Chen Braas from Blue Water Shipping for making this happen.”

In addition, the Port of Skagen has been working in cooperation with SDK Shipping to facilitate lay-ups for AIDA Cruises, as well as service calls from AIDADiva, AIDAMar, AIDAPerla and AIDABlu. TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff 2 has also docked in Skagen for a short service call.

Port of Skagen has already secured “many” bookings for the 2021 cruise season. However, it is still waiting for directions from the Danish authorities and cruise lines before it can finalise operating protocols for these calls.
